We need someone with extensive post '87 knowledge (that could be you!). I believe Brent asked to become a full member of the band in a financial sense. By this time he had been in the band 11 years and felt he deserved his full piece, especially since his emergence by '89 as a driving force during shows. He was refused at some point in the spring or summer of '90. I want to say post summer tour. As far as Vince, he was definitely hired help and seemed to be content with his place in the band.

Any LiA's or CH's post '87 out there?

Thanks for this. As for Vince, you are right. In one of the books (Macnally's maybe) he was actually shocked (in a good way) at what the band was giving him. Didn't make up for the band giving him a broom closet as a dressing room in some arenas but....

For that specific information you'd have to go "very deep inside" somewhere close to Cameron Sears or Eileen Law and up the ladder from there. That, BTW is a short ladder.

Since GDP was not a publicly held Corp they did a good job of keeping those cards close to the vest, so-to-speak. I doubt that even Hal Kant had complete access.
